The Tokyo Night Sky Is Always the Densest Shade of Blue

Mika, a nurse slash girl bar hostess, and Shinji, a temp construction worker meet and separate, but feel drawn together under the Tokyo sky. Their relationship is more about being lonely together than forming a happy couple. Tokyo, with individual stories under its glittering global capital image, gets a poetic rendering in the hands of Ishii.
